Exhibition & Workshop: im’print: in view by Mo Healy

An award winning stained-glass and mosaic designer by training- Irish Artist, Mo Healy began to explore printmaking in the 1990’s.

Over the ensuing creative years, her artistic practice and vision evolved through etching, relief & monoprinting, collage and Artist Book-Making.

Mo Healy’s approach first involves mark-making. Attentive to materials and technique and always returning to signature colours, her compositions are inspired out of expressive responses to traces of memory and threads of moments grown out of a sense of borderline place ( North Northumberland, Scottish Borders, The Black Isle, Iona, Galloway, Monaghan and Dalriada) but engage ultimately beyond boundaries.

Tones, textures and shapes are thoughtfully considered for both organic flow and balance. Ideas merge, sometimes with text -for even deeper context; resulting in a new way of seeing.

This slow and reflective creative process is how Mo builds the connective practice to her next work. Deeply connected to personal life, inspired by landscape, rooted in shared celtic heritage her prints and images have their own stories to tell. They also allow space for the viewers to find their own story and connections.

Mo lives and teaches in Northumberland. She was a finalist in the inaugural Lady Waterford Art Prize 2021 and will be Artist-in-Residence at St Cuthbert’s Centre on Lindisfarne in July 2023.
